Food Dudes

As part of our health promotion we ran the Food Dudes Programme this year. Food Dudes is a healthy eating programme designed to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables at school and at home. For 21 days fresh fruit and vegetables were delivered to the school. The children have made a great effort to try new foods and develop new tastes. They had apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, carrots, cucumber, baby corn, peppers, melon, blueberries and pineapple. The children were supplied with a Food Dudes lunchbox to bring fruit and vegetables to school from home. Parents can promote the healthy eating programme by providing these healthy foods for their children every day. It is hoped that this will be continued on an ongoing basis now that good habits have been established.
